Kerrie Poliness, Black O wall drawing #6, 1997
Fibre-tipped pen mural
Monash University Collection
Purchased with funds donated by Mrs. Margaret Stewart, 1997

September 7 – October 9, 2009

Curated by Danny Lacy, +/- examines the minimal and the maximal, the reductive and the additive, the positive and negative, exploring the formal visual elements of pattern, repetition and grid across a wide range of mediums. Inspired by Kerrie Poliness’ geometric Black O wall drawings, +/- focuses upon works from the Monash University Collection, and selected loans, that play with formal aesthetics.
